NOTE: Some settings appear in a subcategory in the settings menu. App or website updates may change these settings menus.
Pulse Ox

Allows your device to record up to four hours of pulse oximeter readings while you sleep.

Move IQ

Allows you to turn on and off Move IQ events. The Move IQ feature automatically detects activity patterns, such as walking and running.

Auto Activity Start

Allows your device to create and save timed activities automatically when the Move IQ feature detects you have been walking or running for a minimum time threshold. You can set the minimum time threshold for running and walking.

Daily Steps

Allows you to enter your daily step goal. You can use the Auto Goal option to allow your device to determine your step goal automatically.

Weekly Intensity Minutes

Allows you to enter a weekly goal for the number of minutes to participate in moderate to vigorous intensity activities. The device also allows you to set a heart rate zone for moderate intensity minutes and a higher heart rate zone for vigorous intensity minutes. You can also use the default algorithm.

Custom Stride Length

Allows your device to more accurately calculate the distance traveled using your custom stride length. You can enter a known distance and the number of steps it takes to cover the distance, and Garmin Connect can calculate your step length.
